CARE is a set of tools to help educators see what antiracist teaching looks like, hone their own practice, and analyze classroom resources.
While most educators want to address race and racism in schools and classrooms, they lack the necessary tools and skills.
CARE’s mission is to advance antiracist curriculum and equip antiracist educations. These tools are created to advance antiracist curriculum and equip antiracist educators.
Like so many before us, we look to a future where the promise of equality is upheld for everyone. We understand that keeping the promise means working together to overturn the long legacy of racism that has limited opportunity for many. We recognize we’re not yet there, and we believe, along with Nelson Mandela, “That education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” What and how children learn – in the curriculum and in how they are taught – can lead to that more equal and just future.
The CARE Framework recognizes the need for a clear understanding of what it means to be an antiracist educator providing guidance and support for aspiring antiracist educators and leaders through professional learning.

Like so many before us, we look to a future where the promise of equality is upheld for everyone. What and how children learn – in the curriculum and in how they are taught – can lead to that more equal and just future. That future depends on antiracist educators with access to high-quality materials who are committed to their own learning.
Apply the CARE Principles to Classroom Content
The materials teachers use with students — read-alouds, videos, textbooks, websites — don’t come with labels that indicate whether they’re antiracist. Figuring that out is the work of educators. It’s not easy to do, because it often means looking for what’s not included or learning to see the content from a different perspective.
CARE’s rubric and exemplars will help you learn to analyze content either alone or with peers in your PLC.
CARE Exemplars were developed by a team of expert classrooms teachers who analyzed a range of student resources using the CARE Rubric. These Models can help educators apply the CARE Principles to the curriculum they were with students.
